Just like every other international agreement done by politicians this one will have no validity or any real effect. Gota love a photo op.
The Accord, drafted by Brazil, China, India, South Africa and the United States, is not legally binding, and does not commit countries ever to agree a binding successor to the Kyoto Protocol, whose present round ends in 2012. The BBC immediately reported that the status and legal implications of the Copenhagen Accord were unclear.
